Microsoft Edge Dev channel updated with several fixes

What you need to know

  • Another weekly update is now available for the Microsoft Edge Dev channel.
  • The update doesn't bring any new features, but several bug fixes are included.
  • The update moves the version number up to 76.0.172.0.

Microsoft has pushed out another weekly release for the Edge Dev channel. This latest update doesn't bring any new features to the table, but it does include several bug fixes that should improve the overall experience.

The fixes largely focus on preventing crashes on startup or when opening an InPrivate window, along with corrections for some UI bugs. Here's a look at the full release notes:

  • Fixed an issue where Edge sometimes crashes on launch.
  • Fixed a crash when viewing settings in InPrivate.
  • Clicking the shortcut for a pinned website will now select a tab that contains the shortcut's website if one is already open instead of opening a new tab every time.
  • Hovering over a website's address on the history page now shows the full URL.
  • Fixed an issue where the first launch experience doesn't happen if the user isn't connected to the internet.
  • Fixed an issue where certain dialogs are cut off on small screens.
  • Fixed an issue where the side panels on certain edge:// pages aren't visible when the window is at a narrow height.
  • Fixed an issue where the horizontal scrollbar did not appear on certain pages.

This follows a fairly major update that was released last week, which added dark mode and a built-in translator to Edge's default features. They were previously available only through the browser's experimental developer flags.

If you're currently testing the Edge Dev channel, the browser update should be available now. If you want to start testing the new Edge built on Chromium, you can download the Dev and Canary channels now.
